UCL 2021-22

Hi,

Has anyone heard back from UCL?

I applied mid December and still haven't heard back (which is about 30 working days if you don't count the break)...it says it can take 'up to 35 working days'.

Anyone had news?

Hey I applied around mid-December and received an offer near the end of January.

OK that sounds like bad news for me then...mine just says 'under assessment' and it's been two week's longer than yours. Are you from the UK or international?

International student in the UK. Congrats on your offer! Are you based in the UK? Your offer seems high, mine was a 2.1 overall and 65% in my final year.

Nah it's roughly equivalent - Australia has a different grading system. A 'first' in Ausralia is 80%. So 75% is roughly equivalent to a 2.1

Makes sense. Is UCL your first choice?

I've applied to Cambridge, Oxford and LSE and am still waiting to hear from them. First choice is probably Cambridge...But I'd also be very happy with UCL.

We are pretty similar. I applied to Manchester, UCL, LSE and Cambridge. Just waiting on Cambridge! My first choice is Cambridge as well but have an offer from LSE.

Congrats on the offer from LSE. Do you have any thoughts on LSE v UCL? I haven't heard back from LSE and it's been just over 7 weeks since I got my ID so I'm hoping I hear soon.

I don't like my chances with Oxford...

Thanks. I think I'll choose LSE over UCL because it is generally more prestigious. Surprisingly, LSE has a more attainable offer, 65% overall, compared to UCL's 2.1 overall and 65% in final year. I was going to apply to Oxford but exams got in the way. I think Oxford has a higher offer rate than Cambridge.

Edit: If it helps, I applied to LSE around 3 December and recieved an offer 2 February.

Yeah I think it depends who you speak to. The BCL at Oxford is common-law countries only, so they receive far fewer applications than the Cambridge LLM which is open to everybody (and they receive up to 1200 applications I think).

My understand is still that the BCL is a more 'prestigious' degree. But I like the idea of Cambridge for the diversity!

I agree with you. I think the BCL is generally viewed as the most prestigious LLM in the world.

Hello - congratulations to both of you! I was unfortunately rejected by UCL on 16th Feb. Heartbreaking because I had applied less than three weeks ago. I'm even more worried because my apps for the other schools are similar to UCL's!
Could you share a little bit about your profiles? It'll definitely help if I make an application again next year.

Sorry to hear that. I hope you get an offer in yours other applications. Could you share your background?

I applied for the LLM in International Banking and Finance Law. 
My second referee sent the recommendation letter early this week and the application is "under assessment". I am afraid the application was submitted too late, but everybody says it is OK because those approved to Oxbridge and LSE will drop their UCL's offers by now. I hope so.

I don't know if it helps as I am waiting an answer, but my background is 2:1 LLB from a top-notch Brazilian law school (exactly 7,2/10,0 - Brazil's equivalency for 2:1 is an overall mark of 7,0/10,0, as per UCL's website).
I am also finishing the LLM in Laws and Compliance in another major Brazilian university in April 2021 (expecting an overall 9,2/10,0, i.e. A). I don't know if UCL will consider this course as a Master Degree, but I listed and sent the transcript with the grades realeased up to now.
In addition, I have 9 years of work experience (3 years as legal intern + 6 years as corporate labor lawyer in a tier 1 law firm in Brazil).

If you're still waiting, there is still hope! I graduated in 2014 from one of the top law schools in India. I had a cgpa of 5.66/7.00. Honestly not sure if that qualifies for the 2:1 requirement. I've been practicing constitutional law in India since I graduated. Good luck, I hope you get through!

Hello! I saw a lot of applicants here so I thought why not ask from the experienced. In my 2nd semester at college because of some misunderstanding I missed 2 of my exams and flunked in one as well but my aggregate of all the years is 65% (60% is considered 1st division in India). Will that incident of second sem create a hindrance for me in getting accepted in any of those top rated colleges at UK.

I think UCL requires a higher cgpa according to their international equivalencies:






Equivalent qualifications for India
The award of any of the following from a recognised institution:A Bachelor's degree with a minimum overall CGPA of 7.75/10, 6.25/8.0, 5.75/7.0, 4.25/6.0, 3.3/4.0, or 60% where a GPA scale is not used. The overall mark required is dependent on the subject and the ranking of the institution at which the degree has been taken.

ALTERNATIVE QUALIFICATIONS


Master's; Medical / Dental degree; MPhil/PhD






https://www.ucl.ac.uk/prospective-students/graduate/taught-degrees/law-llm


Peharps you did not meet the minimum requirements now, but a Master in Law with 1st or 2:1 marks might compensate the cgpa. However, check the websites of your preferred universities.


I saw different equivalencies for Brazilian grades in LSE, UCL and QMUL. UCL considers as 2:1 LLB an overall grade of 7.0/10,0, but LSE just accepts 7.5/10.0, above. In the other hand, QMUL requires 7,5/10,0, but accepts 6,5/10,0 plus a Master degree or work experience (tbh the minimum requirement is 2:2).

Hello everybody! 

I was thinking of applying to UCL and would like to ask whether you think it is too late to do so based on other years' success chances.

Thank and wish good luck to all applicants !

Hi everyone! Is there anyone who got a result back? I applied in early February but still no news. Should we expect an e-mail or should we control the portal regularly? My application is still "under assessment".
